Pedestrian Warrants for Developing Countries by Simulation Approach

Jay walkers are exposed to higher risk while crossing the road due to lack of appropriate pedestrian warrants and standards. The pedestrian facilities and standards adopted in developed countries are not feasible in developing nation like India. Mid-block pedestrian crossing with different land uses as criteria was selected as case study inside Delhi Urban area. The PTV Vissim and PTV Viswalk, widely used micro simulation software used for modelling heterogeneous, non-lane behavior traffic and pedestrian-vehicular interaction. The inbuilt calibration parameters have been developed considering lane based and homogeneous traffic with less complex characteristics. Hence the calibration parameter for Indian traffic and pedestrian behavior was identified and modified with various combinations for the best representation in the simulation model. As a proposal suitable warrants are developed and simulated for the safe pedestrian movement.
